The Last Supper Art Festival & Charity Event

It’s true, broke people aren’t exactly leading the pack in charitable work. Sure you can volunteer, but when it comes to giving back, our pockets are often empty. So when an event comes around that combines art, music, film, booze, and supports a good cause, you can count me in. The Last Supper is a non-profit benefit for artists and the Food Bank of NYC.

This smorgasbord of entertainment will feature 50 short films, edible artworks (think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory wallpaper), bands, DJ’s, farm collectives and as the name suggests, one big meal at the end. As the season shifts from summer to fall, the Last Supper deals with human’s cyclical nature of consumption and promotes the idea of a self-made culture. What better place to show-off Brooklyn’s best and brightest in the creative field than 3rd Ward. Explore this indoor/outdoor salon and get a taste of every type of artistic medium available. Admission is only $10 if you show up with 3 cans of non-perishable food. And who doesn’t have a few stray cans of Jolly Green Giant lying around? Think of it as the most fun, do-goodery event of the year.

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).

    Doing an art festival and a charity event at the same time is really a good idea. Hope to see a repeat next year.
